Product Description

Review

"Pendergast--an always-black-clad pale blond polymath, gaunt yet physically deadly, an FBI agent operating without supervision or reprimand-lurks at the dark, sharp edge of crime fiction protagonists." "Kirkus Reviews""

"TWO GRAVES provides readers exactly what they would expect from a Preston and Child novel --- thrills, high adventure, treacherous plot twists and well-researched scientific intrigue. The story is never predictable, and Pendergast is a multi-layered personality who keeps you guessing throughout." "Bookreporter.com""

"The names Preston & Child on the cover of a book promise a unique reading experience unlike any other, and Two Graves delivers the high thrills one expects from the two masters...authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have delivered another exceptional book....Fans will love the conclusion to the trilogy, and newcomers will seek out the authors' earlier titles." "The Washington Post""

"Preston and Child's high-adrenaline 12th thriller featuring maverick FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast wraps up the trilogy that began with 2010's Fever Dream and continued with 2011's Cold Vengeance with a bang...[an] intelligent suspense novel." "Publishers Weekly"" --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Book Description

The NEW YORK TIMES No.1 bestselling authors return with a dramatic, page-turning adventure thriller that concludes Agent Pendergast's search for his long-lost wife, Helen.

The previous two books in this particular Pendergast series have been brilliant and this finale ties up all the loose ends from both the other books and ones even further back than that.

However, the pace after a great start seems to stutter a little bit and never quite get back again. There are some pretty dark thoughts occurring in this book especially with Pendergast himself and its an interesting turn of character.

At the same time, Corrie Swanson gets her own sub-plot whilst Dr Felder sets out for the truth regarding Constance. Whilst all three stories are good in their own rights, the authors keen to give each plenty of time may have actually helped slow down the gripping nature of each one due to the stop-start the reader goes through.

I still recommend this book and especially the entire trilogy (Two Graves, Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance).

Hoping for more of the same from Preston & Child in the future.

I was very rude about cold vengence which I make no apology for. This book however goes someway to address this problems mentioned and is a genuinely un-put-downable.
It resolves almost everything but sadly, and I suppose predictably leaves the ending wide open for the next book and in my view, some of the sub plots rather unfinished although you could argue they have been , but it is a stretch.
A good book with, at last, some vulnerability and fragility to our eponymous hero which whilst welcome, diminishes his god like status
and hey, it is not real anyway.

I have read all the Pendergast novels by P&C as well as all their individual novels. This eagerly anticipated novel did not disappoint I could barely carry on reading wondering what was going to hit me next. I must admit I disagree with the other reviewer who said he thought P&C were growing tired of Agent Pendergast. It did not strike me that way and there were loose ends at the conclusion leading to another adventure......which I, for one, will be buying.

I am a self-confessed fan of the Agenet Pendergast novels - I have no problems with some of the more ridiculous plots or plot devices employed (a Southern American monster living under the NY National History Museum - bring it on; "Mole People" living in the NY subway system - no problems!) Where I draw the line however, is the blatant rewriting of other peoples novels (Ira Levin's 'The Boys From Brazil') coming at the end of an overly long, and not particularly well done trilogy. Add in apparently psychic Nazi's, a lair of evil Blofeld would have been envious of and a man able to kill more people than Rambo singlehandedly and it goes from being merely silly to plain daft.

It would be difficult to argue, however, that the book is badly written - it isn't. It keeps up its pace, and it keeps the reader occupied. However, it does make the fundamental mistake (identified by Diana Wynne-Jones) of setting up for yet another novel, outside of the trilogy. This isn't the way novels should end - the reader is not simply a cash-cow, to be milked in the next novel they publish, which continues the themes of the last one, rather the reader is a partner with the writer(s), making the novel work.

Where I have a bigger problem, however, is the way in which this type of novel seems to perpetuate the myth of American exceptionalism and its view that it is the policeman of the world. Such a worldview allows American characters to illegally enter other countries bearing firearms, to shoot (and kill) anyone they please without response from the local authorities. Or, when the local authorities do complain, everything is smoothed over because the protagonist is an American.

Never been disappointed with any of the Pendergast books.
Two Graves was a roller coaster ride of a book that keeps the midnight oil Burning.

Can't wait for the next book(But Wait I must)

This book is different to other pendergast books it shows he has flaws and is human after all. Plenty of plot twists which made it dam near impossible to put down. Read the other 2 before reading this one

After 'Cold Vengeance' was a bit of a let down, Preston and Child have come roaring back with its sequel. You know when P and C are good; you can't put the book down and go to bed. Two Graves creates the same multilevel intrigue and excitement that can be found in Brimstone and Book of the Dead. Pendergast is back on form-hooray!

Can sum this book up in one word. SUPERB. Struggles to put this down, a real page turner The plot was riveting from start to finish. Pendergast is such an amazing character, who can overcome everything and is usually 2 steps ahead of the of the villain. this book shows that he is human after all, as he is pitted against someone who is quicker, more intelligent than Pendergast, and you can feel the fear in him coming through. Really scary that the writers can up with someone more evil and twisted than Diogenes. Read all the Pendergast books and this is by far the best of the series. Could be read as a stand alone but to get the feel of Pendergast, read the series. Looking forward hopefully to the next in the series.
